Just one week after releasing his sixth studio album, Outer Peace, in January 2019, Chaz Bear of Toro Y Moi surprises the internet with his Dropbox exclusive SOUL TRASH V1. Announcing via Instagram, Chaz shares a download link for his fans, a 24 minute project filled with lo-fi sounds and hip-hop beats. The album features auto-tuned rap verses from Chaz, along with other collaborators Old Grape God, Elijah Kessler, & Caleon Fox.
This is not the first time we’ve received surprise Dropbox presents from Chaz, in 2015, Chaz released his Samantha tape, not available on any major streaming service. However, the time has finally come for Soul Trash to make its way to streaming platforms, courtesy of Carpark Records, nine months after its initial release. Originally released in a cassette tape bounce format, this release features all of the same tracks but presented in a more hi-fi setting.
